If she was “saddened” by Republican delegates wanting to “lock her up,” Hillary Clinton must be in a full meltdown to learn that some Democrats also want to put her behind bars.
Bernie Sanders supporters, some rocking “Hillary for Prison” signs and t-shirts, participated in a “lively” protest Sunday in Philadelphia that included chants of “Lock her up!,” The Wall Street Journal reported.

In an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Clinton was asked if she felt “threatened” by delegates at the Republican National Convention chanting “Lock her up!”
“I felt very sad,” the presumptive Democratic nominee replied. “I don’t know what their convention was about, other than criticizing me. I seem to be the only unifying theme that they had… It was a very dark, divisive campaign.”

Amid the fallout of Wikileaks dumping nearly 20,000 emails from the DNC that showed clear bias against Sanders, which resulted in chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning, the “dark, divisive” theme extended to her own party on the eve of its national convention.
Here’s a sampling of responses to the responses to Sunday’s protest from Twitter:

Lest anyone think “lock her up” is some sort of Republican phenomenon, there are plenty of Bernie supporters at this rally chanting it.
